(SPOT.ph) Our frontliners are our modern-day heroes. They may not wear capes, but they crusade every single day to help out COVID-19 patients and more—despite the many risks of doing so. The least we can do is to extend a helping hand—and while staying indoors is helpful in itself, you can go beyond and actually give what you can to help fuel our frontliners’ bodies. We round up a number of ventures that let you do exactly that by letting you donate cash to provide food for hospitals and other establishments in need. The best part is, you don’t even need to leave the house to do so.
Lend a helping hand by donating to these ventures:
Project Nourish is The Moment Group’s initiative aiming to help frontliners by letting you buy meals for them. These come in the form of pack meals brought to medical teams in hospitals and clinics, construction workers in emergency quarantine facility construction sites, and even quarantined patients. A packed meal goes for as low as P50.
For more information, check out The Moment Group’s Facebook page.
CloudEats is the largest cloud kitchen company in the Philippines. They prepare meals for medical staff, government agencies, and other frontliners—and you can help fund them by donating either P648 (good for 10 bowls), P6,480 (good for 100 bowls), and P64,800 (good for 1,000 bowls). They deliver meals to frontliners twice a day, and make zero profit from the venture.
For donations, check out the CloudEats website.
Pledge a Plate
While all their store operations have paused, the Max’s Group—also behind Max’s Restaurant, Teriyaki Boy, Pancake House, and others—brings us Pledge a Plate, where they cook up meals for various hospitals including the Cardinal Santos Medical Center, San Juan Medical Center, UERM Memorial Hospital, and more. A meal goes for just P90, and as of writing, over 26,000 meals have been pledged.
